New Character Classes
The Order of Mage Slayers was
formed after the Vizjerei survived the tragedy brought on by Bartuc and
Horazon. Their purpose was to watch for rogue magi that might become corrupted
by the forces of Evil. To be effective at this task they were trained in
abilities that were not conducive to Demonic corruption. Living as rumor and
myth to the general population, even other magi knew very little about this
mysterious order. Their reputation was shrouded in mystery and the simple fear
of their retribution almost ensured steadfast vigilance against corruption
amongst those who knew they were real.
Assassins do not employ the magical arts directly; rather,
they use enchanted items that mimic elemental powers and can be used
autonomously. To further avoid potential corruption, they focus on the natural
abilities of the mortal body--powers of the mind and unarmed combat.
The Druids inhabiting the
northern forests of Scosglen developed their magic independently from the
eastern mage clans. They served as the warrior-kings of their tribes, usually
living apart from their people in massive stone towers that were covered with
vines and ivy. As masters of the natural world, they were able to control
living creatures and the very forces of nature.
Perhaps the most notable power of these Druids is their
ability to change their form into that of an animal. Because of this ability,
the tribes under their rule knew that they could be watched at any time. The
sight of what was thought to be a common beast transforming into a vengeful
Druid kept many a potential uprising in check.
The Druid controls both Elemental and Prime magic. His
Elemental powers give him control over fire, earth, and the winds. His Primal
bond with nature allows him to command many beasts and plants, summoning hawks,
wolves, vines, and even natural spirits to do his bidding. He can also change
his own shape into creatures such as a huge cave bear or a dire wolf, and then
use these forms to call upon further powers.
